Yesterday afternoon, I decided to take a little break from writing and working on the website to sack out on the couch.
No couch time is complete without something in the DVD player to listen to as you fall asleep, so I popped in Season 2 of Chappelle's Show. I ended up watching the entire thing.
This show was brilliant and I doubt that I am the only one who misses it dearly. There hasn't been anything like it on TV since and I doubt there ever will be and that makes me sad.
Now, I'm not going to speculate on what happened to drive Dave to Africa and quit the show because there is no answer good enough to make me accept that at the peak of it's popularity and following the incredible second season, this gem simply stopped existing.
I miss Samuel L. Jackson beer ads and game shows like "I Know Black People."
I even miss people saying, "I'm Rick James, Bitch!" and that was real annoying for a very long time.
It's time for Dave Chappelle to return. Maybe not to TV with a show like this and not in crappy movies like he was doing before the show skyrocketed him to stardom, but in some capacity.
Dude was too smart and too funny to be gone already...
